Limbaugh’s dangerous rhetoric

Dehumanizing your opponent is a prelude to inciting violence. Longmont’s hate bloggers have been hard at work on this for years. People of good character have to keep calling it out and denouncing it. Limbaugh is a monster and panders to the absolute lowest (very) common denominator.

    I know why you posted this, Doug. It’s important to know how ugly Limbaugh, his acolytes and his ditto-heads are. Yet I regret the pollution to this website.

    It’s not the “mouth that roared” that really concerns me. It’s the ears that attend to it.

    The best development in talk radio over the 5 years is the rise of the progressive talk show hosts.

    Thom Hartman 1-4pm on AM760 is a thoughtful, intelligent, truthful and uplifting commentator. If you want to fight Limbaugh and the other hate mongers, listen to and promote the positive alternative.

    Ed Shultz is another progressive voice also on AM760.

    It is not so important that you agree with everything Thom or Ed say. It is important to see that arguments can be made in ways that do not poison the conversation and advocate for people to live down to their most venal selves.

    The language and statements made by the likes of Limbaugh are the soil in which heinous movements and actions germinate.

    Have you seen the advertising campaign “Words have consequences”? It is true.
